aimer bien/aimer beaucoup

I'm a French teacher of 30+ years.  There isn't a  huge difference between j'aime bien and j'aime beaucoup, but the textbooks teach that aimer bien = to really like and aimer beaucoup = to like a lot.

Bonjour Jeanne,

I agree that depending on the textbooks there is a difference in how 'aimer bien' and 'aimer beaucoup' is taught/explained. I gather it may be to help beginners in keeping in mind that 'beaucoup' means 'a lot'. 

See link here: aimer-beaucoup

Merci pour votre contribution.

Bonne journée !
